Contemporary information systems are generally built on the principle of segregation of data and processes. Data are modeled in terms of entities and relationships while processes are modeled as chains of events and activities. This situation engenders an impedance mismatch between the process layer, the business logic layer and the data layer. The authors discuss some of the issues that this impedance mismatch raises and analyze how and to what extent these issues are addressed by emerging artifact-centric process management paradigms.
